http://www.seandelaney.co.uk/spellchecker.php

my code:

<?php
$misspelled = $suggested = $words = array();
$lang = pspell_new('en');

$string = 'Project Engineeer';

echo '<p>Your Phrases was: &quot;'.$string.'&quot;</p>';

$wordlist = preg_split('/[\W]+?/',$string);

for($i = 0; $i < count($wordlist); $i++)
{
      $word = trim($wordlist[$i]);

      if(!preg_match('/[A-Za-z]/',$word))
      {
            continue;
      }
      
      $word = trim($word);
      
      if(!in_array($word,$words,true))
      {
            $words[] = $word;
      }
}

foreach($words as $value)
{
      if(!pspell_check($lang,$value))
      {
            $misspelled[] = $value;
      }
}

foreach($misspelled as $value)
{
      $suggested[$value] = pspell_suggest($int,$value);
}

echo '<p>Suggested words are:</p>';
echo '<ul>';

foreach($suggested[1] as $suggestion)
{
      echo '<li>'.$suggestion.'</li>';
}

echo '</ul>';
?>

Try removing the [1] in your last foreach loop:

foreach($suggested as $suggestion)
{
      echo '<li>'.$suggestion.'</li>';
}

Have you declared the variable $word outside of your first for loop ?

Try putting some print_r() statements between the loop in order to check that your arrays are not empty

Ok, you store your suggestions in an array that is indexed on the word that is misspelled in the first array, if you do not need to print the misspelled word againm, changing the previous loop would give you the result:

foreach($misspelled as $value)
{
      $suggested[] = pspell_suggest($int,$value);
}
